Enter the bright and colourful world of Pora Ora where children can play, learn and have fun. Linked to the National Curriculum, it covers all areas. In Pora Ora children can also make friends, send gifts and visit and rate each other’s homes so there is a fun social aspect too. We love the emails sent to parents which tell of their child’s progress too and the fact that children are taught how to stay safe online as part of their adventure.
